There are some components on your vehicle that don’t get near the credit they deserve—the cup holder for example. How different would your morning commute be without a cup of coffee? One thing’s for sure: there would be far more accidents and whole lot more road rage. But, while the cup holder serves an obvious necessity, there’s another accessory that’s even more essential: the floor mat. And not just any floor mat—a performance grade floor mat by manufacturers like Weathertech or Husky. Which one is better? Well, that’s like asking which beer is better (with the obvious answer being ‘whichever one is in your hand’). However, Weathertech and Husky do have a few unique qualities and, depending on what you’re looking for, one of the two may be more suited to you. Here’s a quick rundown on each.
In general, all-weather floor mats for cars are constructed of high-quality rubberized thermo-plastic and other durable materials to protect your floorboards from the damage that often results from everyday wear and tear. Most are computer-designed to your specific make, model and year, ensuring a precise fit without covering up your floor controls.
They’re available in a variety of styles and colors, including all weather floor mats, carpeted, rubber and some are even emblazoned with your favorite sports and auto logos, injecting some style while still providing maximum coverage. Plus, they’re a snap to pull out and hose off when they become soiled.
When it comes to producing floor mats, Husky is a legend. Each set is custom-fit to the unique contours of each vehicle’s specific carpeted floor areas and also stays in place with exclusive “SPiN Sta-Put” carpet spikes, preventing them from bunching up or sliding all around the floorboards. Designed to fit your front, second and even third seat floor areas (as well as your trunk and cargo spaces), Husky liner mats are constructed of a patented rubberized thermo-plastic material and will not crack or break. Guaranteed for life, Husky liners are known for their taller outer lip that keeps spills from spreading throughout the vehicle.
Not to be outdone, WeatherTech mats feature precision digital measurements and a deep-well design, hugging the contours of your interior while preventing water or any other liquids from running throughout your vehicle. Crafted in the US from high-density tri-extruded (HDTE) semi-flexible material, the design available through WeatherTech mats includes multi-level channels that direct debris and fluids away from your feet, and a deep reservoir that neatly contains the crud below the raised ridges to provide safe, sure footing.
